Chugging Along

Last week, I went to Walgreens to pick up a few things including lip balm. When I got home, I opened the lip balm box only to find it was empty! Now how do I prove to the people at Walgreens that I bought an empty box? I felt dupped!!

I've stayed very busy the last week or so. My wife loves shopping the day after Thanksgiving, but pretty much stops after that leaving me with a long list of things/people to shop for. So my 2 yr old and I have ventured into the frigid weather to shop almost daily.

One of our shopping trips took us to the mall. My oldest had a pair of Gap uniform pants that got eaten by our washing machine. One of many pieces of clothing to be wrecked by our front loading machines.

My eating has sucked!! That's probably enough said. I'm finding it hard to lay off the carbs. I'm reaching for crackers, chips, bread, etc. And the more I eat, the more I want! Besides the carbs, I've also found myself getting back into a bad habit of eating the leftovers off the kids plates.

Stop the madness! I'll be OK, just a horrible rut lately.

We've got a busy week of concerts and Christmas parties. I'm supposed to be at a concert tonight, but I was late and had no idea where we were singing, so I came home without ever singing. Oh well, 5 more concerts to make it to this week, so I'll not worry about this one.

Busy, busy! Are you wearing your pedometer? You should be getting lots of steps ;) ...
I'm the same way w/ carbs - it's easier for me to stay away from them mostly than to start eating them.

I've found Walgreens to be really reasonable about returns and crediting the coupons, etc. Give it a try!
Carbs are so addictive! They are definitely what I crave the most and this time of year they are everywhere! Try to hang on through the next few weeks and January will be here and EVERYONE will be dieting. That makes everything so much easier.
